RAMONA, Calif.  — A 38-year-old man was taken to the hospital after he was repeatedly stung by bees in his yard Wednesday afternoon, according to Cal Fire officials.

The man was using a weed wacker in his yard in the 15400 block of Wyeport Road in Ramona around 12:30 p.m. when he was attacked.

Medics took the man to Pomerado Hospital in Poway, said Cal Fire spokesperson Capt. Issac Sanchez.

When he returned home, he told FOX 5 that he was going to be fine and received antihistamines at the hospital.

The man and his wife are beekeepers and have several beehive boxes on their property. Neighbors told FOX 5 that they are well aware of the beehives as the couple warned them to keep away from the property.

This is the second bee attack over the last couple days. On Tuesday, a woman in Rancho Bernardo went to the hospital after a swarm of bees attacked her as she was walking her dog with her child in a stroller.

Her child, thanks to a covered stroller, appeared to have been unharmed — as well as the dog.
